Ideas Lab: Cross-cutting Initiative in CubeSat Innovations

Preliminary Proposal Deadline Date: February 8, 2019
Program Guidelines: NSF 19-530

CubeSat constellations and swarms have been identified as a new paradigm for space-based measurements to address high-priority science questions in multiple disciplines. However, the full potential of CubeSat constellations and swarms for scientific studies has not yet been realized because of: i) the limitations of some of the existing key CubeSat technology, ii) knowledge gaps in the design and optimization of CubeSat technology for swarms and constellations, and iii) the increasing cost ...

CNH2: Dynamics of Integrated Socio-Environmental Systems (CNH2)

Full Proposal Deadline Date: February 14, 2019
Program Guidelines: NSF 19-528

The CNH2 Program supports research projects that advance basic scientific understanding of integrated socio-environmental systems and the complex interactions (dynamics, processes, and feedbacks) within and among the environmental (biological, physical and chemical) and human ("socio") (economic, social, political, or behavioral) components of such a system.  The program seeks proposals that emphasize the truly integrated nature of a socio-environmental system versus two discrete ...

Frontier Research in Earth Sciences (FRES)

Full Proposal Target Date: February 20, 2019
If a PI intends to submit after the target date, s/he must get approval in advance from one of the Cognizant Program Officers to ascertain if a late proposal can be reviewed in the upcoming competition.
Program Guidelines: NSF 19-531

The FRES program will support research in Earth systems from its core through the critical zone. The project may focus on all or part of the surface, continental lithospheric, and deeper Earth systems over the entire range of temporal and spatial scales. FRES projects will typically have a larger scientific scope and budget than those considered for funding by core programs in the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR). FRES projects may be ...
